  1. OneNote 2016 --- don't want to sign in


    I want to use OneNote 2016 without signing into a OneDrive account. I have all of my notebooks on my desktop and have no interest in syncing to the cloud. In addition, suppose I'm off the grid with no internet. I was able to use OneNote 2010 without the internet. How can I do this with OneNote 2016?

    Thank you.

    Win 10: how to disable OneNote app after installing OneNote 2016

    Hi

    Thank you for the advice; I checked the settings and OneNote 2016 was already the default program for the related file types.

    I am not certain that this was relevant, however, as I cannot remember ever opening OneNote by clicking on the file in Explorer. In any case, my issue is that I want to remove or disable the unnecessary / duplicate / low functionality version of OneNote
    that comes shipped with Win 10 so that the preferred OneNote 2016 version is the only one available.

    In particular, I want to remove the unwanted OneNote icon from the apps list in the Start menu and not have it visible in the Windows Ink menu.

    It does not make sense that, when the full-function program from Office 365 is installed, the poor quality version cannot be removed or suppressed.

    Thanks, Simon
